MILAN - The last time Serie A had a break for internationals Inter's previous game was a 1-1 draw in the #DerbyMilano on 7 November 2021. Just like back in late 2021 Simone Inzaghi's side will once again be looking ahead to the local derby once domestic football gets back underway.
12 WINS FROM 14 GAMES
Of the 14 outings, the Nerazzurri have climbed to the top of the table, qualified for the Champions League round of 16, won the Super Cup and secured a place in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals.
28 POINTS OUT OF 30
Since their resurgence that marked a 3-2 win at home against Napoli on 21 November 2021, up to beating Venezia on 22 January, Inzaghi's men played ten league games, picking up 28 points of an available 30, with nine wins and a goalless draw at Atalanta.
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE QUALIFICATION
The only loss during this period was in the Champions League against Real Madrid, which came after progressing into the next round with the win against Shakhtar. Inter will face Liverpool in the round of 16 on 16 February at 21:00 CET.
THE SUPER CUP TRIUMPH AND PROGRESSION IN THE COPPA ITALIA
A total of 240 minutes were played in the Super Cup and Coppa Italia, which saw Inter clinch the Super Cup after beating Juventus and secure a place into the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia after overcoming Empoli. Inter will face Roma in the quarter-finals on Tuesday 8 February at 21:00 CET.
